• Joe Osae Addo on the Connecting Tissues of Resilience

Joe Osae Addo, a societal extrovert,  is a Ghanaian architect that reinterprets and engages his design  senses in a pseudo modern yet traditional palette. He tries to see Africa beyond its problems and tries to look at the architecture based on African architecture that has come to be defined from great pedigree and resilience rather than the problems facing it. 

JOE OSAE ADDO ON CONNECTING TISSUES OF RESILIENCE IN AFRICA

In this video via DITV, he speaks on the transition from the informal to the modern and how design in Africa has lost some connecting tissue that made African architecture the integral aspect of development and sustainable impacts.
